Being a HUGE Hammer Films fan, I own all the old magazines which featured comic adaptions of their films. It was very cool to see them running around the printed page. Well after decades, Hammer Films are returning to comics in an all new way. Enter their first new book… THE MUMMY. You’ll notice Anubis in these pages which gives a bit of that THE PYRAMID vibe to the whole thing. Have a look…
Press Release: “Titan is excited to announce THE MUMMY – a brand-new mini-series that reanimates the character, as imagined by legendary Horror studio, Hammer.
This series, written by the legendary Peter Milligan and drawn by Ronilson Freire, was revealed on Friday’s San Diego Comic-Con (SDCC). The attached cover was beautifully delivered by John McCrea.
For 2000 years the Sect of Anubis have prolonged their life spans through human sacrifice and the enslavement of an Egyptian High Priestess cursed to walk the afterlife for all eternity.
On one night every 30 years the Sect must offer up a human vessel to house the spirit of the priestess Nebetah so that they can kill her and drink her blood, thus granting them immortality.
But this year they have chosen the wrong vessel and she’s not going willingly.
The Mummy #1 kicks off Titan’s exciting Hammer comics line which was announced at last year’s ComicsPRO. The line will see the publication of brand-new comic stories featuring classic Hammer properties, as well as wholly original Hammer stories, produced by Titan.
The Mummy #1 will be available to order from Diamond’s upcoming September PREVIEWS catalogue.”
